Ministry of Communication and Information: Territorially, the backup data does not have to be in Indonesia

The Ministry of Communication and Information (Kemenkominfo) founded on the ITE Law Number 11 Year 2008 Article 2, which states that the information and electronic transactions can be inter-territorial nature or universal.

That is, the data storage can be placed outside the Indonesian territory as stated in the government regulation on the implementation of the system and Electronic Business (EOPS) Number 71 Year 2019 Article 21.
